Annotation: This report presents data on trends in nonfatal intimate partner violence among U.S. households from 1993 to 2011.
Abstract: Intimate partner violence includes rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault by a current or former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend. Results show that from 1994 to 2011, the rate of serious intimate partner violence declined 72 percent for females and 64 percent for males; nonfatal serious violence comprised more than a third of intimate partner violence against females and males; an estimated two-thirds of female and male intimate partner victimizations involved a physical attack while the remaining third involved an attempted attack or verbal threat of harm. Eight percent of female intimate partner victimizations involved some form of sexual violence during the incident. About 4 percent of females and 8 percent of males who were victimized by an intimate partner were shot at, stabbed, or hit with a weapon. This report focuses on attributes of the victimization such as the type of crime, type of attack, whether the victim was threatened before the attack, use of a weapon by the offender, victim injury, and medical treatment received for injuries. The report also describes ways these attributes of the victimization may be used to measure seriousness or severity of the incident. Data are from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).
